I have a feeling that remote meetings of more than 8 people just don’t work, if you expect "equal" participation. It feels like in the end 1 or 2 people drive the thing. 2 or 3 participate. The rest is just sitting back and... whatever.


And I’m being generous when I say 8. If I sum these numbers. 5 is the most. So split your meeting attendance in group of 5 if you really need people to participate and contribute. Anything else, I’ll be checking my email or writing toots. ;)

@judeswae what about in person meetings? Are the numbers much higher?

@treppo I think it should be higher. Although not by much. But body language and other non-verbal modes of communication are ways of participating in a conversation. But zoom just filters those by default. ;)
